(LOT 423)
1999 Pokemon Game CHARIZARD-Holo 1st Edition PSA 9 MINT

FIRST EDITION ZARD!!! More than 25 years ago, the world was introduced to the Pokemon name by publisher Media Factory, Inc. of Japan. Originally launched as a video game for Nintendo, the Pokemon craze exploded and soon spawned the anime television series and ultimately the Pokemon trading Card Game. The Pokemon Trading Card Game featured humans as trainers who caught and trained Pokemon (Pocket Monsters) to battle others for sport. At its inception there were 151 Pokemon to capture, now there are more than 800 with which to do battle, but none are more powerful than the highly coveted Charizard! Pairing Fire Spin with the Pokemon's highest attack power, Charizard is a force to be reckoned with. Not only in the game but in the collector's hobby as sales of this cornerstone to any Pokemon collection has been breaking records across the hobby year after year. It is likened to the '52 Topps Mantle, the '86 Fleer Jordan and even the T206 Wagner as one of the hobby's "Holy Grails". Featuring the artwork of Mitsuhiro Arita, the offered 1999 Pokemon Game Charizard-Holo 1st Edition PSA 9 MINT is sure to catch your eye. With striking vibrant colors of the beast attacking, this PSA 9 MINT Charizard is virtually flawless with no visible signs of wear. PSA has graded 696 MINT 9 examples and only 121 have graded higher. This children's game is caught up in a grown man's hobby and this is THE CARD you want! The strategy is to "catch 'em all!", but this is really what you want!
